Ecocritical Readings of Late Medieval English Literature

Gillian Rudd

Published by Manchester University Press

Manchester Medieval Literature and Culture MUP

  • Greenery offers new readings of middle English texts, both familiar and less familiar, through the contemporary lens of eco-criticism
  • The uncomplicated style offers possible readings rather than a sealed version of what each text means in green terms
  • Provides individual close readings of selections from such familiar texts as Malory's Morte D'Arthur, Chaucer's Knight's and Franklin's Tales, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and Langland's Piers Plowman
  • Reinvigorates our customary reading of late Middle English literary texts while also allows us to reflect upon the vibrant new school of eco-criticism itself
